Basic breakfast item offered in military chow halls for many years. SOS was short for "S__t on a Shingle", the s__t being the gravy and the shingle being the piece of toast the gravy was put on. Hence, SOS was nothing more than meat gravy, normally sausage gravy, on toast. Don't be fooled by elaborate recipes calling themselves SOS. There's nothing elaborate about SOS. Ask any "old" GI.
